just a counterpoint to the 'shitty gathering' thread.

speaking personally, you could put me in stocks facing away from the main stage, itd still be the shit. 

in peoria, the cops stormed in with riot gear and rubber bullets, shut the whole shit down for half a day, and it was still the bomb.  myself, i got a kick out of it.  even called the local newspaper and told them that terrorists were attacking juggalos with tear gas. 

ive had to grind through nicotine withdrawal, bad trips, scared police, angry girlfriends, no-show performers, thievery, oppresive weather, lousy camp conditions, sleep deprivation…  none of that shit made the gathering an overall bad experience.  ive seen 'fights', excessive drug use, trashy bitches being trashy, nothing that kept me from having a blast. 

every gathering has things that go wrong.  so does every family vacation, or business trip.  but however screwy things get, i cant imagine having a better time sitting around at home. 

whatever fucked uppedness may be going on around me, theres always been bomb ass shows, cool ninjas to kick it with, and plenty of general fun to be had.  literally the only shitty gathering experiences ive had, was when i didnt experience the gathering at all. 

so yeah, who enjoyed their gatherings? 

  awfully paranoid, arent you?

I had a great time in 2010,  however I fail to see anything positive with prostitution, selling crack and heroin, throwing bottles at girls heads, and stabbing someone during a stand up comedians set. It's also retarded when you're trying to watch an artist and someone on cocaine is shooting fireworks at the crowd.

 

There needs to be better security if kids are allowed to purchase tickets.

 

Not blaming this on Psychopathic Records though, they probably hate all that shit more than me.

Yeah I would assume so as you're one of the most mature posters on here. What annoys me is watching video's on youtube of J (saw one maybe I'll find it and post it later) straight up bitching about it. Calling Juggalo's that throw bottles nothing but hoe shit, yet people still do it? come on I seriously saw people covered in Psychopathic tatts throwing shit at Twiztid, ABK, whoever, why act like you look up to someone by getting their tatts then throw shit at them? Poor Violent J……

 

ICP was fucking badass in front of such a big crowd, I'll remember Mars and Mastaminds set's for the rest of my life, seeing Prozak in a huge storm was surreal as fuck….. sorry forgot to post some positive shit homie. wink

 I never seen that many guys in one place pitching a tent. I don't think there was 1 day I was sober at any gathering so that made up for the bad shit

Man, last year's Gathering was freaking amazing to me. I went in 2011 and had a blast, but last year was just insane. I learned what I needed to change to be more comfortable...I got a better tent, a better air bed, we camped in a better spot, I didn't wait in those bullshit autograph tent lines and stuff like that. We also had more people at our camp this year, so I always had friends around. As well as meeting a steady stream of people because they were stopping to mess with the mailbox at our site!

 

Last year, I had this amazing moment...right after Prozak's set, I met him and got a photo with him, then started walking back to my camp just behind second stage. I started to think about all the amazing stuff I'd been doing and experiencing, and got this really crazy feeling of being so incredibly blessed! When I got right in front of my camp, something made me look up, and I could see every star in the sky! It was amazing! I live in a city, so I can barely see any stars at home, but out in the woods, there were thousands. How ironic that the one thing that amazed me the most really had nothing to do with the Gathering at all!

Was there last year for the first time. Indeed a great experience, as well as eye opening.

First time seeing ICP live. Best moment was when they took the stage.... Bass drops, ground rumbles, "dead bodies, dead bodies all over the street". Epic.

Speaking of prozak. Anyone else think he should make a return to the main stage? I know in 2011 he rocked the shit. His show is definitely big enough for a festival crowd

Every year is epic in its own way...but my highlight reel of the 3 best years was 05 (crystal forest enuf said) 06 (the mudd brought us together and i met some of the best fam ever) and 2010, (cuz it was the first time my girl and i took mescaline together and got to experience tech n9ne and dark lotus in the same night).  That year was fun also because it was her 1st gathering...it changed her shit up and i got to experience everything like it was new again...

The biggest problem I see is these elitists, who want a 4 day festival that revolves around them personally. You supposidly been listenin to ICP for atleast a decade and yet it offends you that people get high at their concerts? You feel the need to tell people what they can put in their own bodies? Fuck outta heeere. Why don't you go around preaching security should throw people out who smoke cigarettes while your at it your fuckin nerds. Atleast cigarettes you could argue are affecting you. How does some dipshit blowin lines or poppin pills affect your body ? Let them do them. "Bud and shrooms are ok but not blah blah blah" shut da fuck up that's how it starts, next you won't be able to drink or smoke bud, when does the censorship stop? Or these other elitists who boo or fuck up the set of anyone that violent J hasn't shoved down their throats since 2000. U really think ABK is better than method man? U really boo The Scarface and the Geto Boys off the stage but cream your pants and sit Indian style an cheer for Boondox?

And listen "fam" just cuz your crossed an imaginary line into the concert grounds, you somehow grew balls and think you can walk up and disrespect some girl who is with her man by saying show me your titties? And throwin shit at her if she doesn't? The gathering makes pussies feel like tough guys especially when they have four of their local redneck juggalo blood gang with them. If someone sexually harrrasses or assaults any woman I'm with especially my girl the guns are drawn fuck the you and your slumdog homies are gettin worked for that just like if you pulled that shit on the streets or at a bar. Couldn't imagine bringing my girl to one of these gatherings, I'd be in prison.

I think the gathering is fresh and I'm all for mainstream artists performing, especially the ones that make good music. Busta Rhymes, 36, Lil wyte, Raekwon, etc. that is fresh as hell and makes the trip worth it, performance wise. And honestly I wish they would add more mainstream shit that would fit in, because then it would draw *gasp* attractive women for once ! I would be more than happy to see Slipknot, Mac Miller, Sublime with Rome, yelawolf, disturbed, 311 etc. play there. The men to women ratio is so low, bands like them would even it out more. I don't go to a concert for the girls but lets be honest I'd rather have more women than more fat smelly ass dudes all around me, if u disagree u must be a half a fag even women would prefer more women

tripping on acid and just laying in the grass looking up at all the stars that you can't see back home. It was so amazing... the gathering, for me, is the best place to do acid.

 

and waking up one morning to see this couple just sitting on top of their RV smoking out of their bong... I just really felt the true freedom that you have at the gathering. 

I couldn't even tell you all the great experiences... The whole thing is a great experience

I had the time of my life last year, despite the fact that the whole time I had prolly the worst toothache imaginable(thank you percs) and we ran out of money by the second day. We drove all the way back home(kentucky) so I could pick up my check on that friday. Watching Twisted Insane, Rehab, and George Clinton was fucking amazing on shrooms.

Theres a video of Twisted Insanes set on youtube and you can see me and my buddy in the front center. Everyone around me including him was wiling out, and you can see me in the video just fucking standing there mesmerized. I love DMT.....

 

My only regret was that I passed out on that last night before I could see Lil Wyte, Jelly Roll, and Rittz

Hahaha sounds awesome.

 

& I know how you feel. I was flat broke. Didn't get paid until two days AFTER we left for the gathering. So fucking shitty! So I didn't have any money or any food but I managed thanks to some friends I camped with.

 

and ohhhhhhh thats shitty. I know I almost couldn't make it long enough to see Rittz... I was so dead at that point. I just had to keep pushing to stay awake and not fuckin fall over before I would see Rittz, I love him. I hope he'll be there again this year. and speaking of Lil Wyte last year, my boyfriend caught a bag of weed he threw out into the crowd. I think that was like the highlight of his gathering experience haha... I'm not the biggest fan of lil wyte boy, but Alex loves em. and the free weed was very nice haha

Went to the first five GOTJ and all were great in unique ways. I don't get the pessimistic views from attendees, although there are lame moments here and there. But would y'all rather be at the mall that week? Watching sitcoms at home? Speaking of that, anybody remember the movies way out in the woods at Garrettsville? Evil Dead 2 man that was cool to walk around and just seeing a crowd of likeminded homies watching that shit, just chilling. I could write a novel of GOTJ stories and such. Haven't been to one since 2004 so maybe its changed but I'm certain its still an indescribable experience. Just be prepared and open-minded I guess.... Esham & Blaze hitting on my wife lol, DXM tripping in Peoria with riot squad about to bust my happy ass, seeing Dark Lotus' first show ever in Toledo.. its worth it people. Be prepared for haters to hate on you when you're home though. Envy is a hell of a sin.
